Illustrating some 35 pastel drawings by Henrietta de Beaulieu Dering Johnston (ca. 1674-1729), a portraitist considered the first professional woman artist in the American colonies, this catalogue presents images of aristocrats she produced in Ireland during the early 1700s as well as numerous portraits of the gentry of Charleston, South Carolina, where she settled in 1708. Individual commentaries providing detailed information on the subjects of Johnston's portraits accompany two essays tracing her life and career and examining the political, religious and cultural climate of 18th-century Charleston.
